Finding Gobi: The True Story of a Little Dog and an Incredible Journey Reviews

    Confession: I couldn’t say no to the cute little face staring at me from the front cover. It seems I was drawn to Gobi in much the same way author, Dion Leonard, was drawn to becoming her owner!

    Dion uses a combination of flashbacks to his childhood and earlier life, while also following his ultra-marathon race in which life changed forever by meeting Gobi. Usually I don’t like such uses of flashbacks, but Dion does this effortlessly in a way that always maintains a natural flow to the book.

    This true story was so heartwarming and a perfect antidote to the recent dark and bleak books I had read.

    Dion Leonard, an Australian living in Edinburgh, had only been distance running for a few years when he went to China to compete in the Gobi ultra marathon - 155 miles over seven gruelling days (it makes me feel ill just thinking about it). In the desert the daytime temperatures got up to 130 degrees Fahrenheit or even higher so its a real test of endurance. On this race he encountered a litt

    What Can I say.... I missed this story and the internet chaos the first time around...

    But I am so happy with this book I know the story thankfully!

    This his an incredible heart warming, touching, fantastic story, with warmth, humble that touches your heart, more so if like me you are an animal lover....

    I understand fully how the love of an animal can touch your heart, so much and would have done exactly the same as Dion....

    This is not only a story of an incredible dog, but of an incredible couple

    This book gave me a bit more than I expected. I remember when Dion and Gobi were in the news as an unlikely ultra-marathon running duo in the far west of China, but if I thought I knew the story, I was wrong! The book covers the race, a bit of Dion's backstory, and then a lot of the book is spent on what happened in between the finish of the Xinjiang race and Dion's arrival back in the UK with Gobi. Despite knowing there would be a happy ending, there were times I was feeling the stress and coul ...more

    Dion Leonard, an Australian living in Edinburgh, Scotland, was in China for the 155-mile race through the Gobi Desert when a small brown ball of fluff with big eyes attached herself to him. As he ran each leg of the race, the dog kept pace with him. At one stage they crossed a water course, and when she called to him from the bank, Dion turned and picked her up, carrying her across. When it was obvious the little dog would remain by his side, he named her Gobi – her courage and tenacity was outs ...more

    Yep, here's another one! Most people who follow my reviews soon realize I read A LOT of animal memoir books. As soon as one becomes available, I must have it! They almost never fail to disappoint, and this one was no exception.

    Dion Leonard is an extreme runner, after taking up the sport because his girlfriend/wife became interested in running as a sport and encouraged him to join her. Not one to take things by halves, Dion found himself competing at an elite level, racing some top notch runners

    "Finding Gobi" is a rollercoaster and thrilling ride. This book is well written and an interesting read. This is another example of how dogged determination and faith will always have a positive result and an outcome.

    The heartwarming story of Dion Leonard and Gobi. It represents the amazing connection between a human being and a dog and also shows how things can be achieved and accomplished when people work together, with a common goal.

    It does feel many a time, that the whole story is too good

    Ex-pat Australian Dion Leonard is an ultra marathon runner, who takes part in 5 day races staged in extreme settings. Like the Sahara, Kalahari and Gobi Deserts. Early in the 2016 event his path crosses that of a cute, skinny little terrier, who then follows him through exceptionally harsh conditions. He names the appealing little stray ‘Gobi’ after the region in which he is competing. By the end of the race, he has decided that he will do his best to adopt Gobi and take her home to Edinburgh
